Natural MD Radio: From Fear to Freedom

“The part that takes the work is, when you’re in that emotional rollercoaster, when you’re on that thought tidal wave, is catching it.” – Aviva Romm

I used to believe that for every good thing that happened to me, something bad had to happen as well to even it out, like a universal balancing system. Every time something good was going to happen, I always thought to myself, “What will the payback be?”

Today I want to honor this fear that women in particular live with, and talk about why it’s not necessarily an irrational one to have. In my years of experience working with and talking to women, I have learned that lots of women live with this fear, often for a long time.

Listen in as I talk about why we have this fear, acknowledge that you’re not crazy for having it, and how to shift out of this kind of thinking.
